Hi...I am a RN in a LTC facility. I have worked there for 10 yrs now. Many of my co nurses have also been there this long, some even longer. We live in a small community and do enjoy working here. We want to take care of our community people. The problem we are facing is the lack of recognition we get. We had a meeting today and were told that we will now be taking turns being "on call" d/t the fact that we have a nurse or two who like to call in and our DON and nurse manager are tired of covering their shifts. Instead of correcting the problem, this is what they came up with. We have to be on call Fri thru Sun and holidays. Does anyone else do this?? They compared it to being on call like a hospital, but that is completely different. Also, we are always given the comment that we are always "replaceable"!! And might I mention that our CNA problems are out of control. Many of them will do the no call no show thing. When we bring this up with management, nothing gets done!! Do other nursing homes face these same problems too? Just want to get a feel for is going on.
